Building performance repair and testing beyond single family
Explore patterns between single, multifamily, and commercial blower door testing along with repair strategies. Many techniques are similar, however, many processes and material choices are very different. Learn what strategies and hurdles a Home Performance contractor should consider before pursuing a project over 5,000, 10,000, or even 50,000 square feet. Single family contractors will discover that they too can repair large buildings.

Avoiding the white kitchen trend
The design world has offered up more than a few monstrous concepts over time—Zubaz pants, bowl cuts, carpeted bathrooms, and now white kitchens. What is it about these trends that makes them such terrible offenders? What makes a white kitchen so egregious? This session will look at micro and macro trends, and examine what makes one thing a timeless classic while the other is destined for the land fill. Bonus points for correctly identifying the value of pink flamingo lawn ornaments.
